(Before It's News)

The Conservative Manifesto promised fairer funding for places like Wokingham where our schools are at the bottom end of the range when it comes to per pupil sums of money to support them . I was one of the MPs who pressed this issue in the Coalition years and was pleased the party adopted it as policy.

This week I attended a meeting with the Education Secretary with some other colleagues. We pressed her to speed up consideration and implementation of a fairer funding formula. As it now looks as if it will not be available before 2018-19, we also pressed her to produce some transitional arrangements to relieve the worst pressures on poorly financed schools. She said she would look into it, and agreed there was an issue to be resolved.
